Paper Cover Sheet
E-mail address: ______________________________________________
. My paper is typed, double-spaced in a ten or twelve point font with one inch margins on all sides. My last name and page number are on the top of each page.
. I have provided references for all quotations and paraphrases using Chicago NOTE reference style. http://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/tools_citationguide/citation-guide-1.html
. My paper makes a clear historical argument based on refutable claims that are supported by evidence.
. Recognizing that I want to engage my readers with my ideas from the very beginning, I have given my paper a title that reflects my paper's argument and intrigues my readers.
. Recognizing that historians pursue an understanding of who did what in the past and why, I have eliminated passive sentence construction from my paper where possible and have tried to limit myself to a maximum of 1-2 sentences in passive voice construction per page. This not only makes clearer my understanding of historical agency but also helps to tighten my writing, making it understandable and interesting to a larger audience.
. I have read and understand the Policy on Academic Integrity at https://as.pitt.edu/faculty/policies-and-procedures/academic-integrity-code
. Recognizing that this is a formal assignment and that I want to convey as clearly as possible to my audience that I take my work seriously, I have carefully proofread my entire paper.
I affirm that I have read and understand these requirements and that I have followed them to the best of my ability:
